Clinical Trials Innovation - Opportunities and Challenges
March 31, 2015
Hosted by Nancy Lin
Does innovation have to be unaffordable? There is probably nothing that affects more Americans than the increasing healthcare cost in this country. While there were more new drugs approved in 2014 by the FDA than the previous 18 years, many of the new drugs’ prices were staggering. As the baby boomers age, the need for medical breakthroughs to fight disease as well as cost control intensifies. How can we continue to innovate without bankrupting our healthcare system? This week, we take a look at the lengthy process of developing a new medicine and explore new ideas that could drastically change the way clinical trials are conducted. The program will feature John Reites, Head of Product and Strategy for Quintiles Health Engagement & Communications, and the team from the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI), including Pamela Tenaerts, Executive Director and Bray Patrick-Lake, Director of Stakeholder Engagement.
